Head over Heels is the second studio album by Scottish rock band Cocteau Twins. The album was released in October 1983, and was their first album as a duo. It features the band's signature sound — "Guthrie’s lush guitars under Fraser’s mostly wordless vocals" — and is widely considered an archetype of early ethereal goth music.
The original United Kingdom and Canadian cassette and CD and the Brazilian CD versions of Head over Heels included the EPSunburst and Snowblind. The 2003 CD, remastered by Robin Guthrie, does not include the EP.
^MTV News Staff: "In 1983, Heggie left the band, and the group recorded Head Over Heels as a duo. The album was highly improvised and is the first recording to feature the Twins’ signature sound — Guthrie’s lush guitars under Fraser’s mostly wordless vocals. The group became a trio again when bassist Simon Raymonde joined in 1984. Later that year, they released Treasure, an album that hit #29 on the U.K. charts and cemented the band’s ethereal sound.", Cocteau Twins short biography, January 4, 1998
